please do the iovecs... isn't that what NT supports?  linux supports it as
well (via TCP_CORK and writev)... it's only hpux i think that's got the
silly single buffer limitations.

please do the trailers... just so that we have them for when we want them
later.  (i.e. consider an imap server which wants to use sendfile to send
message bodies/attachments, it needs a trailer).
